Brno, May 6 (BD) – Police responding to the call reported hearing the dog whining in the apartment, and neighbours confirmed that the situation was not unusual. A 25-year-old man answered the door, and did not deny that he was beating his dog, a pitbull. He claimed the beating was in response to the dog growling at him.

When the door was opened, the dog ran straight to the police officers present (0:39 in the video), who noticed bruising on the dog’s head and body, and a bleeding gash above its eye. The dog also appeared to be trying to hide from its owner. Suspecting a crime had been committed, the officers asked state police to deal with the case. The dog was taken to a vet for treatment, and then to the city police dog shelter.
